 Sync Stickies with Google Tasks/Notes Empty Sync Stickies with Google Tasks/Notes

Mon Dec 07, 2020 10:30 pm
Hi,

I am using Stickies on my Desktop and Google Task and Google Notes on my Android.
Stickies is by far the best Application for Windows and I'm perfectly happy with it but I hate having several tasks/notes I need to keep track of.

I'd love if there was a way to sync Stickies with Google Tasks or Google Notes or any other App.

I know that this is not a small feature request. So if such a feature is not intendet for the future, does anyone have a recommendation for an application that runs on my desktop as widget and can sync to an android app?

Thanks in advance

Sync is something I've thought about in the past, and will probably come back to at some time in the future.  As you appreciate though, it's quite a bit of work just to get it right within Stickies, let alone hooking into some other system.

The good news is that the Stickies API, and the database being in a SQLITE format means anyone else could write the code instead Wink

 Sync Stickies with Google Tasks/Notes Empty Sharing Stickies Across Multiple PCs with Google Drive

Sat May 08, 2021 11:51 pm
To Eggsplorer, et al - Here's what worked for me (sorry this is PC-centric, but it may help)

For my multiple Windows 7 PCs, I simply copied everything into "C:\Users\<acctname>\Google Drive\Office\Stickies"  (I created the "Office" folder for my way of organizing things :-)
Then, all my PCs that have Google Drive can just invoke stickies.exe
Here's what the file structure looks like in the Stickies folder (no symbolic links or junction points - it just seems to work):
[backups]
[skins]
[stickies]   (there appears to be some duplication here (my fault?) and in the [backups] folder
desktop.ini (may be hidden in your view settings)
mdb2db.exe
stickies.chm
stickies.db
stickies.exe

That will work just fine, with one big caveat - only one computer should run Stickies, and make changes, at a time.

You don't need the [backups] or [skins] folders, and I don't recognise the [stickies] folder.  The only file you need to copy around is stickies.db - although putting the exe in the same location means it's a little easier to get working.
